A major port of the Mediterannean, Marseille is the second largest city of France. It’s also ‘a little out of the way’. I say that, because when you reach Avignon, you can take a right and carry on into Spain. You have to turn left at Avignon to reach Marseille, whereupon you reach a dead end.
As we have developed our French road freight services, we are pleased to be able to provide a twice-weekly service, departing every Tuesday and Friday.
An additional service is also provided to the island of Corsica in conjunction with our partners Fatton Transports. Sailing from Marseilles, consignments are consolidated at our partners Lyon depot to save time, or delivered directly into their Marseille depot when additional trailers go directly to Marseille.
Our freight service to Marseille
But now, with our new venture into France, and with our new partner, it is our aim to develop this South-Eastern corner of France in it’s own right.
- Our service to Marseille and the surrounding regions from Montpellier along the Southern coast to Cannes and Nice is direct every Tuesday and Friday, supplemented with combined indirect departures as necessary
- Transit times are between 48-72 hours from our Manchester terminal to the Marseille region
- Dangerous goods capabilities are available on almost every trailer, in addition to Temperature-Controlled services
